Golden Eagles Enjoy Success Under Sunny Skies at Tee It Up for Hoops
June 21, 2011
HARTLAND, Wis. - Thanks to contributions by many Milwaukee-area businesses and individual donors, the Marquette women’s basketball team enjoyed another successful day at the Tee It Up for Hoops golf outing. One hundred friends of the program enjoyed golf and a bountiful lunch at The Legend at Bristlecone in Hartland, Wis. This year the outing generated $36,000 for the women’s basketball program.
Mary Ellen Markowski and women's basketball executive assistant Monica Schwarz served as the executive committee for the outing.
"Tee It Up for Hoops was a tremendous event that not only gave us the opportunity to celebrate women's basketball at Marquette, but to look ahead to all of the great things in store for the future," said head coach Terri Mitchell. "We owe so much gratitude and thanks to Mary Ellen and Monica for their efforts and ensuring it was a success. Our staff and players had a wonderful time and we are already looking forward to next year's event."
The 8 a.m. shot-gun start outing featured a par-3 challenge along with longest and shortest drive contests at various holes where Mitchell, members of her staff, student-athletes and former players were stationed throughout the course.
After the 18 holes were complete, participants feasted on the buffet lunch and enjoyed a live auction by the voice of Marquette basketball, Steve "The Homer" True.
Next year's Tee It Up for Hoops golf outing is set for June 12, 2012 at The Legend at Bristlecone. For more information about how to get involved with Tee It Up for Hoops, please contact Monica Schwarz in the women's basketball office at 414-288-5784.
